Kyo is late for morning practice at Daimon’s dojo. Benimaru jokingly asks him if he intends to win the KOF by being lazy. Kyo answers that they can find out with a fight, and Shingo volunteers to go first against him.
Shingo gets so carried away by the fight that he loses track of his surroundings and almost crashes against Yukari, who was watching the match.
While Shingo apologizes, Kyo loses his patience at Yukari.
“It’s dangerous to just stand there like an idiot! Don’t hang around idly while we’re training!” he yells.
Benimaru intervenes, telling Kyo that there are better ways to talk to Yukari. Kyo doesn’t get what he’s referring to, because his intention was to warn her about the danger and nothing else. Benimaru doesn’t push it, but he says that they can clarify the issue with their fists.
Yukari is worried, but Daimon tells her that it’s fine, that this type of discussions happen “all the time”, because that’s how fighters settle their differences.
Later, while preparing breakfast, Yukari reflects about how hard it is to live with fighters. Daimon reads her thoughts on her face and asks her not to focus on the negative aspects. He explains that Kyo was appointed head of the Kusanagi family and Kusanagi Ryuu when he was fifteen years old, making him awkward at everything except fighting.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that Yukari should forgive Kyo for everything he does or says, but Daimon explains that, as Shingo and Benimaru appreciate Kyo, maybe Yukari will be able to see some good in him as well.
Yukari clarifies that she doesn’t think Kyo is a bad person. She was just startled when he yelled at her. With this out of the way, Daimon asks Yukari to go for groceries to prepare dinner later. She suggests buying meat, because the fighters need to replenish their stamina, but Daimon tells her to buy fish instead, Kyo’s favorite food.
